Something I Don't Like...

October 15, 2014
Guys, I have had the hardest time writing this sad, sad post.
After my friend and fellow beauty lover, Chicago (hey, girl) asked me to review this, I happily said, "Yes!" Then I quickly realized that I, in fact, have this product and I hate it.The item in question?
Maybelline's The Nudes Palette.

Ughhhhh, Nudes Palette, I wanted to like you so bad. It was super hyped-up when it first came out, and it still is. An ad literally plays before I watch any YouTube video, and it's driving me up the wall.   (LUCKILY) I got this on sale, and as the supposed answer to the original Urban Decay Naked Palette, I had high hopes.

NOT ALL HOPE IS LOST. I think if you don't have any kind of palette and you want to see if you'd get a lot of use out of one, this might be a nice stepping stone, but I also think you could go ahead and save that $9.99 to use towards the actual UD Naked Palette, which is amazing.

What I hate about this product is the shadows are for the most part just terrible. They're chalky, they crease, and a lot of them don't even show up on my skin. To be honest, the shimmery shades are actually not too bad.. there are two that are really nice... but 2/12 just doesn't cut it for me.

Sad times, Maybelline... Sad times.

Are there any products you've picked up lately that have been disappointing?
